I hope I'm just reading it in the wrong order. The correct
order is to 1st fsck, then mount, not vice versa. Never
fsck a mounted file system.

This is completely normal today. As long as a file system is
not mounted, the label is provided. When it gets mounted, this
label is being removed. You see this on your console.
